Magical connections

It is great hearing from people about the Randini book I did and even more exciting when it is a magician that buys one, and likes it. That makes me proud for Randolph and I am sure he would be delighted to know he is talked about in the USA. Joe Fox, a magician over in… Read more »

It was good to return to Slad too- and see the valley… Read more »

In Puruit of Spring by Edward Thomas… Read more »

Wadsley and Punch and Judy

Interesting walk around Wadsley and the common researching for next book this week. Ghost stories abound around there. Was easy to imagine it was haunted in parts, it was so still. Saw a few nuthatches. Fabulous views. So many lovely places I must explore more. I tend to go to the Peak when there are so many… Read more »
